Stuff I like helping with
I like to get websites off the ground, for myself or for you. Once you commit to getting it started, it’s easy as pie for a professional or yourself to tweak it.
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
AWS is utterly awesome – once you understand it. Until then, it’s a foreign language. Possibly one most non techies never learn. I love to use AWS, and I’m happy to share the knowledge.

Or, Apple’s iBeacons driving more Android upgrade sales from JB/KK? Various sources put the percentage of android users on 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and 4.4 (KitKat) at about two thirds of all android users. That’s a staggering number, even when only of users passing by a shop at your local shopping area. The percentage of retailers[…]
I’ve just had a massive influx of U8 smartwatch visits in the last day or so, and I assume it’s due to new Christmas presents. Some of those searches continue a few common themes of questions, so I thought I’d answer them here (as I’m not sure if they are finding clear answers out there[…]
